Police pull over XR’S fake ‘government’ bus


An Extinction Rebellion bus with an “HM Government” logo was pulled over by police – but only got a ticket for an “unsafe carpet”.

The group said that its spoof government bus, which went around promising a Citizen’s Assembly on Climate and Costs, was stopped in central London and held for nearly four hours yesterday. But police gave the driver a ticket for the carpet on the stairwell before letting them continue on their tour. The hoax was paired with a fake press release.
